Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Beds in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the county boundary in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around 37,000 and a heritage extending back to the Roman period, at which time the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is found close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there existed settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, early artifacts and coinage unearthed in the area show proof of this. The old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now named the A5, went through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place during the 10th Century, and artefacts found suggest that they were staying in the area probably since the 6th Century. The settlement as such was not referred to until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a way wider area than simply the town itself, and comprised the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may well have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't put on prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to numerous tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
